AUSTIN, TX — The Capitol Police District’s robbery division has confirmed that a North Austin adult store was burglarized on Saturday Feb. 24 of a large percentage of the store’s inventory.
“They smashed out a front window, took a large amount of inventory, and left us feeling pretty shaken up,” Stephanie Boggs told the Austin Chronicle. “It’s very violating to have someone come into your space where you work every day.” said Boggs.
Boggs further added that the masked robber didn’t take any money, but targeted a very specific piece of inventory — a brand of adult toys called We-Vibe which anyone who is familiar with sex toy brands, is one of the top selling and expensive tech style pleasure products line.
“They knew what they were looking for,” said Boggs said. “It’s very desirable in our store. We sell a lot of it.” said Boggs.
Austin police responded to a burglary alarm at Q Toys at 6:03 a.m. on Saturday Feb. 24., however as of March 6, no one has been arrested yet.
Q Toys is now seeking $2,500 in donations to help make up for its losses and as Tuesday March 6, it has pulled in more than $1,600 of its goal.
“People are being very sweet,” added Boggs. “We have a fantastic customer base.” said Boggs.
The Q Toys adult boutique has also promised to donate any extra money it earns to area nonprofits. Q Toys over the past five years in Austin, has donated to several organizations including Project Transitions, AIDS Services of Austin and Planned Parenthood.
“We so often ask you to give a few bucks here and there to help out folks in our community who most need it,” said Boggs. “Today, we are humbly asking you to help us out.” said Boggs.
Plus as an added thank you, the Q Toys adult boutique is offering free shipping on any products that are not in stock because of the robbery.
Anyone with information on this crime are asked to call the Capitol Police District at (512) 463-3556 or Contact Capital Area Crime Stoppers at (512) 452-5223.
